The methods used for the assessment of adult Onchocerca volvulus by histology are described. Based on the results of several studies, mainly in Liberia and Burkina Faso, the morphology of the adult filariae in histological sections is represented as far as it is relevant for the evaluation. Especially are described the morphological alterations due to old(More)
Copy neutral loss of heterozygosity (CN-LOH) refers to a special case of LOH occurring without any resulting loss in copy number. These alterations is sometimes seen in tumors as a way to inactivate a tumor suppressor gene and have been found to be important in several types of cancer. We have used high density single nucleotide polymorphism arrays in order(More)
Neuroblastoma is a very heterogeneous pediatric tumor of the sympathetic nervous system showing clinically significant patterns of genetic alterations. Favorable tumors usually have near-triploid karyotypes with few structural rearrangements. Aggressive stage 4 tumors often have near-diploid or near-tetraploid karyotypes and structural rearrangements. Whole(More)
Soluble proteins extracted with Tris-buffer pH 8.8 from both differentiation stages of the protonema of Funaria hygrometrica (chloronema and caulonema) were separated by microgel electrophoresis. 4x10-3 mg protein/gel was applied. The caulonema, which is the only part of the protonema able to form buds following cytokinin treatment, contained 3 protein(More)
